TV show description:
A tournament-style game show in which 10 male and 10 female contestants compete against professional “Gladiators” in physical contests and obstacle courses.

Events include powerball, jousting, tug-o-war, assault, swingshot, snapback, whiplash, and pyramid. Two contenders of each gender compete on each episode with the winners advancing to the quarterfinal round. The game then becomes a single elimination with the last contestants meeting at the half-season final. Winners at this level receive a cash prize and compete in the Grand Championship for bigger prizes.
